Acts16:30 ——- And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Jesus doesn’t make anyone do anything they don’t want to do. He gives us the opportunity to choose who we want to serve. We can either serve Him or Satan, that’s your choice.
You have a choice to continue in your sins or reject them. You have a choice to tell a lie or tell the truth. You have a choice to be straight or be gay. You have a choice to believe God’s Word (Bible) or not believe. What I’m trying to say is that all through life we are going to choose to either do good or evil, to live righteous or unrighteous, to live for Christ or Satan. You have that choice.
Did you know that God can’t save you without your permission? What I’m saying is that you have to invite Him into your heart; you have to want Him to save you. Now in order to be saved you have to confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead then you will be saved. You have the choice to accept God’s eternal salvation or reject it. You have the choice to accept God’s love through Jesus Christ or reject it.
God loves you and He only wants the best for you. So choose God’s way of doing things. Read the Bible which is God’s word, go to church. Not just any church but a church that’s teaching the risen savior (Jesus). A church that’s teaching you how to live the way that God wants us to live, a church that’s teaching you right from wrong, a church that’s teaching you how to follow Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
When we give our life to Jesus we have to say no to all that opposes our choice. If we live for Jesus we have made a choice to take the right path not the wrong. If we keep our big decision firm, the smaller decisions will be kept in check automatically.
What is our decision when it comes to Jesus?
Elimelech was a man of God but when it came to making an important choice of going against God’s Word or following it, he went against God’s Word and His life ended in a disaster. Having known the truth this man looked at the availability of the pleasures of the world and made a wrong choice to go after those pleasures. When that choice was made, other choices also follow.
God truly loves us and it doesn’t matter if you believe or trust in Him or not. His love is everlasting for each and every one of us. He waits with open arms to embrace us into His family.
God is fighting your battles, arranging things in your favour and making a way even when you don’t see a way.
